Resurgent Royal Challengers Bangalore will want to build on the win over Kolkata Knight Riders when they welcome table-toppers and defending champions Chennai Super Kings on Sunday. The Royal Challengers kept alive their slim playoff hopes with a thrilling ten-run win over two-time IPL winners Kolkata Knight Riders. On the other hand, Chennai enter the contest after suffering a crushing 6-wicket loss at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad.

For Royal Challengers, their bowling still looks like their weak link as they almost failed to defend 213 against the Knight Riders. But their batsmen have finally started delivering as they scored over 200 runs even without AB de Villiers. Captain Virat Kohli led from the front with a sublime century while Moeen Ali impressed too with a blistering fifty. Bangalore now have the momentum and will want to make the most of it.

Super Kings, on the other hand, showed that they are dependent on their skipper MS Dhoni. In his absence, the defending champions looked absolutely dismal against the Sunrisers. Dhoni is Super Kings’ highest run-scorer this season and is likely to return to the playing eleven for this game. With 7 wins in 9 games, CSK are all but sure of a playoff spot and a win in the upcoming contest will further guarantee it.

Both the teams, meanwhile, have already met once this season. Super Kings had hosted the Royal Challengers in the very first game of the season and had bowled them out for just 70 before winning the game by 7 wickets. The Super Kings have thoroughly dominated this rivalry and have not lost to Royal Challengers since 2014. With the momentum in Royal Challengers’ favour and stats and history with Super Kings, the upcoming contest promises to be a thrilling affair.

How will be the weather:

The much-awaited clash could be spoiled by the rain gods. According to AccuWeather, there are chances of rain throughout the game. But fortunately, the chances of rain are just 7%. And with that, there will be a considerable amount of cloud during the course of the game. According to the report, cloud-coverage will hover in the 40s. The humidity will be between 65-79%. As far as the temperature is concerned, it will be between 24-26 degree Celsius.
